What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW Madison is a place where anyone can find their niche. There's so much opportunity here and so much to learn. The campus is huge yet homey, as its nested between two lakes. The students definitely embody the whole "work hard, play hard" idea; you'll find people out drinking every weekend, Thursday is like a Friday here, and sometimes Tuesday is, too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a transfer student, instantly upon my arrival to campus, while I was in the airplane landing at the nearest airport, in Madison. I could see the campus directly out of my window, and my face was filled with joy and excitement. To see the gorgeous lakes and bright luminous green from the trees and grass, I was thrilled to see the area in person. Once I step foot on campus I knew finally I found home in Madison, to see the beautiful scenery and people, it was a feeling of redamancy, to have the return and share of love. Everyone was greeting each other, smiling, and hugging. We all just embrace one another to make sure everyone's stay is the same feeling of home. I am so thankful and blessed to be able to say I am a Wisconsin Badger.

At first, I didn't like it because I found it too big and overwhelming. However, now that I've found my niche and got more accustomed to college life, I love it here! There are so many different kinds of classes and student organizations to join! The academics and student life are both amazing and living in downtown Madison is the best!

UW Madison is an amazing university. Full of interesting people, places, and subjects. It affords students a chance to learn in a fun way. The advisers show a genuine, thoughtful interest in your plans and future. The sports are something you will be proud of. You won't be disappointed in this city or this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Wisconsin Madison is a second home for me, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in going to college. The campus has tons of things to offer, and the academic side of life is exquisite. The students are all very friendly, the professors are helpful, and the community loves the students. Sports, food, and the dorm life make things a whole new world to experience, and that is why I love my college. Go Badgers!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think UW-Madison is a great school! There are so many ways to get involved on campus. However, depending on the group you join, it may not be run the best, so the information might be hard to get (rely on emailing!). Lots of these organizations also realize you are a student here and studies come first, so there are many different levels of commitment. I would say the dorms are either what you should expect coming to college or better! UW-Madison probably has a renovation project or two every year to improve their facilities. Not gaining the "freshman 15" is also not a problem here with the SERF (a recreational facility) and such a big campus, you are always walking (which may be a downside). However, they do give the students a free bus pass that goes everywhere in Madison, so it is not too hard to go pick up food or go see a movie. The food on campus, for someone who is relatively picky, is actually pretty good! They always have fruits and vegetables (desserts, too), and a wide array of cuisine to choose from. Their course choice is also huge, too, almost intimidatingly so. The campus does offer and promote using an adviser so that you do not get overwhelmed with your choices. As expected, class size will be huge, but all professors hold office hours which are helpful, plus there are smaller discussions for some. Lastly, it goes without saying that the athletics here are phenomenal. From someone who thought this school would be too big and not the environment that I wanted, I can happily say I picked a good school.

If you don't party, don't expect go get to know many people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think overall UW Madison is a great place for students. While there can be some issues with being open minded and accepting of all, I think most students put forth an effort to expand their knowledge and here various sides of any situation. Badgers are great at balancing putting a lot of work into their academics and having a good time. We really live by the saying "work hard, play hard."

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am going to be a sophomore at UW-Madison this fall. Overall, I really like my campus. My freshman year, I lived in the dorms like many students on campus. The quality of the dorms really depends on which dorm you select. Newer dorms like Leo and Smith are going to be a lot nicer and bigger than the older ones. Some dorms even include A/C and walk in closets. The food on campus is pretty good, but it gets boring after a while. But when you get bored of the dinning hall food, there are tons of places to eat on State st.

I love UW-Madison! Not only does the school offer exceptional academics but also many opportunities outside of academics! I enjoy my classes and have had excellent professors! I am involved in a club and fraternity and have had great experiences so far! I also attend sports events and have fun on the weekends! The school offers a great balance of academics and extracurricular activities!
